Track Name: Shipwreck Cove

ModNation Racers for PS3: Shipwreck

ModNation Racers for PS3: Shipwreck 2 ModNation Racers for PS3: Shipwreck 3

pikminenco says “a powerful hurricane “devastated” most of the ships but that doesn’t stop the MRC to make a racetrack of it. There are 3 ways to cross the lake, through the shipwrecks, through the shallow water and a hidden route that you will have to find yourself.”

Track Name: Desert Island Dash

ModNation Racers for PS3: Desert Island Dash

ModNation Racers for PS3: Desert Island Dash 3 ModNation Racers for PS3: Desert Island Dash 2

atheistsw says “This is a pretty challenging course, but also very rewarding. There are multiple routes to take which offer up their own pros and cons and should make for varied, thoughtful racing strategies. I do believe this is my most fun and most balanced track to date featuring a bit of everything. Fast straights, drifty hairpins, big air jumps, devastating devastators, some roly poly barrels and a few nifty shortcuts for good measure, this event has it all and a bit more thrown in at that.”

Track Name: Shortcut City
Created by: Flamestalker-NL

ModNation Racers for PS3: Shortcut City

ModNation Racers for PS3: Shortcut City 3 ModNation Racers for PS3: Shortcut City 2

Flamestalker-NL says “Go between those trucks, check that alleyway and what’s behind the market stalls? As the name implies this track is littered with shortcuts. There are more then 15 shortcuts to find, some even combine or split up. The combinations you can make are almost endless.”

YouTube “Show us yours” Creation Contest!

Remember we are having a “Show us yours” contest. Contest rules are simple. Just submit a video or picture of your very best Track (original IP’s only) to ModNation@Playstation.Sony.com. One last note, be sure to subscribe for all the latest updates to MNR’s Youtube Channel.

When is the cut off for submissions to the mod/kart Monday contest? I can’t find a cut-off date mentioned anywhere. And, can you not post pictures of your creations on the forum. I did that today and it seems to have been deleted but people posting pics of their tracks are there.

mackt123 said:

August 31st, 1:46 pm

modnation.. who is your driver?

Icandy55 said:

August 31st, 2:06 pm

Disregard the second question. I simply posted it to the wrong area. But I really would like to know the cut off on submissions.

Hey is ufg working on the westell 7500 thing i would like to know if you cant is there any way to fix my router for it to work with mnr without messing it up? please reply.

Beawolf_Agate said:

September 1st, 5:31 am

Double XP..woo hoo. I should easily be able to get 100k this week, lvl30 approaching fast.

Ramone is there any plan to up the XP in series races? Some ideas

1) XP for the fastest lap within the race e.g. 50 XP
2) Mega bonus if you win all 5 races in the series e.g. 1000 XP
3) Increase the base XP.. maybe x1.5 for everything

If not please throw in some of more these double XP weeks, I get the feeling the races will now be packed which is what we want.

What time does double XP start?

Beawolf_Agate said:

September 1st, 10:18 am

@70 dunno I’m in UK and still no double yet. Could be midday pacific time, I think that’s what UFG is on?


TheAlbraskan said:

September 1st, 12:57 pm

Yeah it’s about after lunch here and still no Double XP, from races at least.

Kraisis said:

September 1st, 1:23 pm

Here in Germany nothing too.

gazb1986180 said:

September 1st, 1:37 pm

So how will this actually work then? Will points be double as and when we get them or will they double up on the 8th September?

Icandy55 said:

September 1st, 2:59 pm

That’s a good question gazb. I’m beginning to wonder the same thing. I hope it’s not at the end. That won’t be near as exciting. I hope someone will tell us when it starts or IF it has started!

TheAlbraskan said:

September 1st, 3:05 pm

Oh I think I see what it is, it’s doubled for XP series races, and creations. That’s why I wasn’t getting anything from those single XP races.

pocon28 said:

September 1st, 3:09 pm


I did a couple of xp series races and didnt get double xp.

SlySkyrat73 said:

September 1st, 3:14 pm

SlySkyrat73 said:

September 1st, 3:16 pm

Man i wish they lets us know what is going on.

gazb1986180 said:

September 1st, 3:17 pm

please someone official give us an answer dont just tempt us!

TheAlbraskan said:

September 1st, 3:35 pm

Yeah I just did a whole XP series and no double XP. :(

SlySkyrat73 said:

September 1st, 3:40 pm

i think it’s the blind leading the blind there.

pocon28 said:

September 1st, 3:49 pm

I’m not that surprised that they managed to mess this up…

UnhumanGoat said:

September 1st, 4:17 pm

Where’s the double XP! I don’t see it :/

SlySkyrat73 said:

September 1st, 5:08 pm

it starts 2am pacific time tonight the servers didn’t update runs till next thur.

Livingstoni813 said:

September 1st, 5:47 pm

Hi Ramone, noticed this week was advertised as double xp week, but I’m not seeing anything except the regular amounts. I’ve seen some people saying it’s delayed until 2am PST, and also, that there was no server maintenance so the double xp wasn’t implemented due to that. No offense to anyone that posted the info, its just that until we would hear something form you, or get a link to where they found their info, its pretty much hear/say. If we could get an update on when the double xp would be implemented, it would be much appreciated. Thanks- Living.

Go to the modnation community forum. In the ‘Double XP’ thread, RUSSELL_05 (community developer) says, “The servers didn’t update double XP will be working starting at 2am (pacific time) and we will run it until next Thursday to make up for the lost 24 hours.”

Livingstoni813 said:

September 1st, 5:55 pm

Thanks, just read your response on the MNR website. Appreciate the response. Thanks again.

September 2nd, 6:32 am

Anyone got the slightest clue as to what is going on with double XP? The numbers during series races are still standard, I win like 3 or 4 series in a row and then go back to mod and it gives me like 400 extra XP… i mean WTF?

Ramone please explain how this works.

jorgeswerebear said:

September 2nd, 7:24 am

Ya, I will tell you what is going on with double XP week. They still haven’t figured out how to get it to work… There is no double XP yet.

Beawolf_Agate said:

September 2nd, 8:08 am

@92, ok I think I can see it working now. I just won a series and I racked up around 2,000 XP for it which sounds about right. It seems to do it in the background.

moriarty1975 said:

September 2nd, 8:14 am

Double XP IS working now. Normal XP amounts are shown at the end of a race or series but we are getting double XP. Take note of your XP amount, do a single race then check your XP while in the modspot to see.

atheistsw said:

September 2nd, 4:01 pm

Hi Ramone, my track Bayside Blitz was supposed to be the hot lap for this Wednesday just gone, but it seems you actually put up another track of the same name by a creator called DeLive. You can check this because his track has 3000+ plays and mine has only 26 :( Could you look into this for me please? Thanks.

OveReAction said:

September 2nd, 10:21 pm

Good News: I have 250,00 Create XPs and now Level 30 because of this. Very nice idea, Ramone!
